I've been hammocking for the past 2 years, I've never used an underquilt, and up to the point where I watched Tinny's post I thought I was doing it wrong. I just don't have the extra funds for one, nor the skills or equipment to create one on my own. I have the BA air core pad in a 15* BA bag, and I bring along a 40* LaFuma down bag (which I've had for years) as added top insulation (just in case). Granted, I don't go out in sub-zero temps, but I've gone down below freezing and been fine (ok, maybe some cold feet, but thanks to the forums I have a lot of remedies for that).
My point being that, aside from any personal disagreement with his attitude, it made me re-think my "need" for a UQ. If it's working for me so far, why do I need to change it? I like reading the posts and watching the vids because they spark my interests, and make me think about stuff from other people's perspectives; it's one of the reasons I recently joined the forums.
I will look forward to reading / watching many more, even those I might disagree with
. And I encourage everyone to think
, as Tinny suggests in his video.
